five days ago, we began to explain to the american people that donald trump is a con artist. [applause] sen. rubio: and in just five days, we have seen and the impact it is having all across the country. [applause] sen. rubio: we are seeing in state after state, his numbers coming down, my numbers going up. [applause] sen. rubio: and two weeks from tonight, right here in florida, we are going to send a message loud and clear. we are going to send a message that the party of lincoln and reagan and the presidency of the united states will never be held by a con artist.
2:25 am
[applause] [chanting "usa"] sen. rubio: of all the places in america, and i have traveled this country and am proud to be back, because there is no place in america that understands the american dream better than this community and this great state of florida. [applause] sen. rubio: like our country, this is a place built by people who always work hard for a better life. here in this community, we have all been raised by people who know how special america is, because they know what life is like outside of america. people who lost their homeland.
2:26 am
by millions of people who lost their future. but thank god they found this great country where anything is possible, where anyone can go as far as their talent and hard work will take them. [applause] sen. rubio: but we know that the things that make america special did not happen on their own. they happens because for over 200 years, each generation of americans did what they needed to do to leave their children better off than themselves. i am from a place in america that understands that. for literally everyone one of us here is one generation away from someone who made the future of their lives. only in america would that be possible.
2:27 am
[applause] sen. rubio: but that american dream that changed our lives and changed the world is in trouble now. for the first time in a long time, young americans believe the american dream is dead. it is not dead, but it is in a lot of trouble. because after 8 years of barack obama, the american dream is slipping away. but here is the good news. we do not have to remain on the road we are on right now. when i am president of united's, states, we will not just save the american dream, we will expand it to reach more people than ever. [applause] sen. rubio: in just the last week, since thursday's debate, i have been inundated with e-mails and calls from people all across this country who are joining our effort. if you are watching tonight, i ask you to join our effort. i ask you to go to marcorubio.com. be a part of our team. because what is at stake, is not just the future of america, that the future of the conservative movement.
2:28 am
36 years ago, ronald reagan defined conservatism for a generation. it is not a coincidence that so many young americans my age and a few years older are all people who believe in the american dream, and in the conservative message. [applause] sen. rubio: because we are the children of the reagan revolution. we believe in free enterprise. we believe in a strong national defense. we believe in limited government. we believe in the constitution of the united states. [applause]
2:29 am
sen. rubio: we believe the world is a stronger and better place when america is the strongest country on earth. [applause] sen. rubio: and we know that america is strongest when it stands with its allies, allies like israel. we will always be on their side. we stand for freedom in a cuba, venezuela, nicaragua. [applause] sen. rubio: these things are not negotiable. [chanting "marco"] sen. rubio: these things are not negotiable. but there are some people who
2:30 am
are not strong on these issues. the other day, donald trump was asked, will you take sides with israel, and he said he is not taking sides. [booing] sen. rubio: donald trump says he is not taking sides and wants to be impartial. when i am president of the united states, we are on israel's side. [applause] sen. rubio: and the world will know we are on israel's side, because in my first day of office, we will cancel barack obama's deal with iran. [applause] sen. rubio: when i am president of the united states, for the first time in eight years, we will have a president who follows the constitution, not violated every day. [applause] sen. rubio: it will begin on my first day in office, because of my first day, i will cancel every single one of barack obama's unconstitutional executive orders.
2:31 am
[applause] sen. rubio: when i am president of the united states, you will have a president that believes in free enterprise, and actually offers ideas to save it. i believe in free enterprise, not because my parents were wealthy. i did not inherit $100 million. i did not start out with a small, $2 million loan from my dad. my dad was a bartender on miami beach. [applause] sen. rubio: and the reason why he had a job is because free enterprise works. if any community in america understands that socialism does not work, it is right here in miami, right here in florida. [applause] sen. rubio: when i am president,
2:32 am
i will reduce taxes and regulations. we will save medicare and balance our budget. we will utilize energy resources. and i will do more than just erase the lines around the state. for health care, we will repeal and replace obamacare once and for all. [applause] sen. rubio: when i am president of the united states, we are going to rebuild the united states military. [applause] sen. rubio: when i am president, we are going to have a real war on terror, which means the best intelligence agencies in the world will find the terrorists. the best military will destroy them, and if we capture them alive, they are not getting a court hearing or a lawyer, they are going to guantanamo bay. [applause]
2:33 am
sen. rubio: when i am president of the united states, we are going to take care of our veterans again. god bless our veterans. [applause] sen. rubio: and by the way, when i am president, you will have a president that every day will do what i will do right now. i will thank our firefighters and police officers for everything they do for us. [applause] sen. rubio: and you will have a president who never apologizes for defending your second amendment right to protect yourself and your family. these are indeed difficult times, and many people are struggling. i know many of you are
2:34 am
struggling. do not give into the fear. do not give into anger. do not give into sham and con artist to try to take advantage of your suffering and your hardships. instead, believe as we always have as a nation and a people, that we do what needs to be done, america's greatest days are always get to calm. we have a real problems, and we will confront those problems and fix them. we will lead our children as the free as in most prosperous americans that have ever lived. we always believe in this country that tomorrow can always be better than today. there is a lot of work to be done. [chanting "usa"] sen. rubio: there is a lot of work to be done. for we are all the inheritors of the dreams and hopes of those who came before us. for 200 years, each generation of americans has done their part. now the time has come for our generation to do their part.
2:35 am
when i am president, this generation will do its part, not just to save the american dream, but ensure that it reaches more people than it has ever reached before. [applause] sen. rubio: that is why i am so passionate about this election. that is why a one u to understand, that no matter how long it takes, no matter how many states it takes, how many weeks and months, i will campaign as long as it takes to ensure that i am the next president of the united states. [applause] sen. rubio: we will not allow the party of lincoln and reagan to fall into the hands of a con artist.
2:36 am
we will not allow the next president of the united states to be a socialist, like bernie sanders. and we will not allow the next president of the united states to be someone under fbi investigation, like hillary clinton.

mississippi, right here in jackson, where down the road at gulfport or d'lo -- you know? our job is to believe in ourselves. our job is to have the confidence to know each one of us can be part of changing this world. we don't have to wait for somebody to come riding into town on some stallion to solve our problems. what makes this country great is the strength we have where we live. our families, our neighbors, our communities. if we all slow down and realize we are all made special for a purpose of healing our world, the world in which we live, you take the success from people at the top who get people to rise and solve problems regardless of politics, and you add into that the spirit, the reignited spirit of americans who know they can rebuild where they live and make it a contagious element in our
2:46 am
society where people are going to know they need to live a life bigger than themselves. we do those two things and we will shine up america the way we have wanted it for so very long. this century, this 21st century, for our children and our grandchildren, it will be america's best. thank you all. god bless you.

2:54 am
this was an exciting evening. it is great to be in florida. it is great to be with friends in the press. i know it was a tough night for marco rubio. he worked hard. he spent a lot of money. he is a lightweight. but you know what, we are going to go to florida and spend so much time in florida. we have a 20 point lead. a lot of the special interests and lobbyists, the people that want to have their little senator do exactly as they want, they're going to pay $20 million into it over the next two weeks. frankly i think that is fine as far as i am concerned. if he wins they will have total control. he is not going anywhere anyway. we are going to spend a lot of time in florida. virginia was a great win.
2:55 am
it is a place we have big investments. we have thousands of employees and florida. it has been an amazing place to invest. it has been amazing to have so many wonderful employees, urging us on. thousands of employees all over the country, all over the world. it has been just so beautiful to watch this company grow and watch it grow so strongly. recent articles came out talking about how great a company we built. we want to put that same ability into doing something for our nation. our nation is in serious trouble. we are being killed on trade. absolutely destroyed. china is taking advantage of us. i have nothing against china.
2:56 am
i have great respect for china. their leaders are too smart for our leaders. the trade deficits at $400 billion and $500 billion are too much. no country can sustain that kind of trade deficit. it will not be that way for long. we have the greatest business leaders in the world on my team already. believe me, we are going to redo those trade deals. you look at countries like mexico where they are killing us on the border. absolutely destroying is on the border. they are destroying us in terms of economic development. carrier air-conditioner moving into mexico. ford moving to mexico. nabisco closing up shop in chicago and moving into mexico. we have to stop it. we are going to create jobs we will create jobs like you've never seen. we're going to lower taxes. i have a plan that so many think is the best plan they have seen. we going to lower taxes substantially. the middle class has been forgotten.
2:57 am
it was the predominant factor in making our country into a country that we love so much. but we forgotten the middle class. we are going to lower taxes. we are lowering taxes on business. when you see pfizer moving to ireland and you see so many other companies constantly leaving. they used to move from new york to florida. now they are moving from here chris understands the problem. we can't let that happen. we have lost manufacturing jobs. millions and millions of jobs, thousands and thousands of plants. manufacturing plants, warehouses. we are losing so much we can't let it happen. i tell the story about a friend of mine who was in the excavation business.
2:58 am
he always orders caterpillar. he ordered tractors from japan because they have cut the end. they have devalued the yen. i don't want that to happen. that is not going to happen. they should not be able to do it. we have tremendous power. we are the source. we have great power. we have politicians who truly, truly don't know what they are doing. we are going to work hard. i am so honored by this. i was with my wife, it looks literally like this. you have a lot of cameras here tonight. it looks literally like the academy awards. i never saw so many cameras in my life. it takes a lot of courage to run
2:59 am
for president. i have never done this before. i have been a job producer. i have done a lot of things. this is something i have never done. and you look the income when incompetence of the iran deal, we get absolutely nothing. when you look at all of the problems our country has, you look at our military which is being depleted rapidly, we are going to make our military bigger and better and stronger than ever before and nobody, nobody is going to mess with us, folks, nobody. [applause] so -- so it is an amazing honor to have you with me tonight. it will be ok if you want ask questions. [inaudible question] >> there is pressure within the republican party.
3:00 am
some strongly worded statements, if donald trump inns up as the nominee, we will need to find a third-party option. donald trump: they can always do that. then they will just lose everything. let me explain something. if you have seen what has happened, where we had a tremendous victory in new hampshire, tremendous in nevada, you look at what has happened and tonight is the best of all. they have projected 6. we could be 7-8, 9, major states, georgia, massachusetts, -- [cheers] tennessee, virginia. these are amazing states. we are going to probably get a lot more.
3:01 am
we are projected to have good additional numbers. i will say this. we have expanded the republican party. when you look at what has happened in south carolina and you see the kind of numbers we have in terms of extra people coming in. they came from the democratic party, the democrats. their long-term democrats. they were never going to switch and the all switched. they were independents. we have expanded the party. look at the number of votes in that area as an example. four years ago they had 390 thousand votes. we doubled it. we were almost 800,000 votes. the democrats went down. there is much less enthusiasm. i am a unifier. i know people will find that hard to believe. i am a unifier. once we get this finished i'm going to go after one person, hillary clinton on the assumption she is allowed to run which is a big assumption. [applause] i don't know she is going to be
3:02 am
allowed to run. that is going to be an easy race. i beat hillary in many polls. i don't think marco is going to be able to beat her. i think ted is going to have a hard time. ted cruz has a shot because at least he has won a little bit. we are going to be a much finer party. a much -- a unified party. to be honest with you. we are going to be a much bigger party. our party is expanding. look at the primary states were i have won. that hasn't happened in many decades. we are one to be more inclusive, more unified. we are going to be a much bigger party. we're going to win. [applause] [inaudible question]
3:03 am
donald trump: i'm just doing what is right. planned parenthood has done good work. i will say it. the so-called conservatives say that is -- i am a conservative. i'm a commonsense conservative. millions of women have been helped by planned parenthood. we are not going to allow and fund as long as you have the abortion going on at planned parenthood. we understand that. we will see what happens. planned parenthood, millions of people writing letters. i'm going to be good for women. i'm going to be the for women's health issues. it is important to me.
3:04 am
maybe that is not a perfect conservative view. i can tell you i more conservative than anybody on the military, taking care of our veterans, on the border on the wall, on getting rid of obama care and coming up with something much, much better. getting rid of common core and bringing education to a local level so that you have good education for our children. so, i mean come you can call it what you want. i am a truth teller. i will tell the truth. ok? go ahead. i feel awfully good. i'm watching your people. i'm going to be very nice. i'm watching your people on cnn. i'm watching the msnbc people. i'm becoming diplomatic.
3:05 am
they are being very strong. they are declaring marco the loser of the night. he hasn't won anything. i have to tell you, he was very nasty. he has a right to be nasty. he has not won anything. i do congratulate ted cruz. i know how hard ted cruz has worked on texas. that is a big get. i did very well in texas. one of the things my son told me which i didn't realize is that not only do i win most of the states, some are coming in, i came in second, no worst than second. it wasn't like i won and then i disappeared. the worst i had was a second. so i am very honored by the
3:06 am
turnout. ok, yes, go ahead. [inaudible question] donald trump: right, right. i disavowed. chris is my -- he gave me the honor of joining the campaign. what you have is a movement. we spoke. they had to be 20,000 people inside that convention center. every place we are thinking. if we have 10,000 people it is a small group. when chris called he said this is a movement. they have never seen what is happening now. when chris joined we had a news conference.
3:07 am
right after the program we are talking about, we are groups, groups. who knows. right after, i put out a tweet and i put on facebook that i totally disavowed. i disavowed them. i disavowed today. how many times are you supposed this about? i disavowed. hopefully it is the final time i have to do it. if you look at facebook and twitter i put out a statement because i wanted everyone to be sure. [inaudible question] donald trump: there is going to be renegotiation. it's going to be a good
3:08 am
negotiation. not a bad negotiation. hopefully i will make a great deal and lots of great deals to the american people. you can't go around just signing notices the president signs all the time, executive orders. it is a must like i don't even know, does he deal with congress anymore? does he speak to the senate? does he speak with congressman and get them in a room and get things done? a good example is something that i think is important to me. corporate inversion. carl icahn, a great businessman who endorse me, where we are losing companies. the taxes are too high. we have the highest taxed nation in the world. importantly they have trillions, trillions of dollars outside of this country. the democrats agree it should be brought back in.
3:09 am
the republicans agree it should be brought back in. everyone agrees it should be brought back in. i could sit in a room or the oval office for literally half hour and i believe i could get everybody, every single person. they don't agree on common core, or other things. these trillions and trillions of dollars should be brought into the country he doesn't know how to make a deal. he probably doesn't care. you are talking tremendous amounts of money. if you can't make a deal there is something going on that is wrong. you have the wrong leader. [inaudible question] donald trump: we are going to
3:10 am
have a wall. i watched the ex-president of mexico. the arrogance of this man. i get along with hispanics. i won in the poll, the hispanic vote. i have thousands who work for me right now that are hispanic. i've had thousands of thousands over my lifetime free these are great people. the mexican leaders are too smart for our leaders. you saw it. vincente fox, no one even talked about the word he used. he was angry at the concept of somebody saying they were going to pay for the wall. we have a trade deficit with mexico. $58 billion. the wall is going to cost $10 billion. it is so easy. i've had these guys. you don't really mean next quiz
3:11 am
going to pay for the wall. as sure as you are standing there, 100% mexico is going to pay. [applause] the reason is i'm a businessman. i know how to do this. politicians are all talk. except for chris christie, of course. it is not going to happen. when you think of that, and they say you are never going to be able to build a wall, it is 2000 miles but we need 1000 miles. the great wall of china is 13,000 miles, folks. they didn't have caterpillar tractors. i love john deere. they didn't have tractors. they didn't have cranes. they didn't have excavation equipment. the wall is 13,000 miles long. we have all of the materials. this is going to be a serious
3:12 am
wall. we are going to stop drugs from coming into new hampshire. it is so beautiful. you look at the field. it is so beautiful. the number one problem, heroin is pouring in. they have so many young people and other people addicted. i told them i'm going to stop it. i'm going to stop it. we are going to have a strong border. they are going to come in legally. he is a friend of mine and i have a lot of respect for rick scott. [inaudible]
3:13 am
donald trump: we have a big problem. [inaudible] we have a big, big problem. we have a big, big problem. we have to figure it out. radical islamic terrorism, big problem. not only for us. you take a look at germany, sweden, brussels. you look at these places. it is a disaster. we are not going to allow people to come into our country, we have no idea where they come from. they have no paperwork. they are young and they are strong. they are young, they are strong, they are powerful. why aren't they back fighting for their country? with that being said i feel strong. we're going to build a safe zone in syria. and when to get the gulf states to have more money than anybody. we have to loosen their wallets. they are not accepting people.
3:14 am
wait -- we are going to get the gulf states to pay for it, because they should. reporter: i am talking about your plans. mr. trump: i gave you the answer, you heard what i said. reporter: what are you going to bring back -- mr. trump: we are going to bring them back. we are going to do great with the african-american. you see that in the polls, one poll i am 25%. and one of the commentators, who i think is standing in the back of the corner said, if donald trump gets 25% of the african-american vote, this election is over. you watch. the reason i am getting that and i will do great with hispanics and virtually every group. the reason, i am going to bring jobs back. i will have apple build of their
3:15 am
computers and iphones on our land, not in china. how does it help us when we make it in china? [applause] reporter: if marco rubio cannot win florida -- mr. trump: i liked marco until about a week ago. he decided to become a don rickles. but don rickles has a lot more talent. honestly, i did. he is losing very badly. the only way you can possibly win, take the hail mary, it has hurt him. in fact, one of the newscast said he went down 15% or 20%. he had a bad night.
3:16 am
they said of the loser of the night was marco rubio. he has not won anything. marco has not won. you got to be able to win, you cannot talk. you have to be able to win something. he actually has not come very close. we will see what happens. go ahead. reporter: there is a criticism from paul ryan [inaudible question] mr. trump: let's not say it again, who are you? good job. look, i don't want to waste a lot of time. i am going to get along great with congress. paul ryan, i do not know him well, but i'm sure we will get along.
3:17 am
and if we don't, he will have to pay a big price, ok? [laughter] reporter: mr. trump, you say what you will do for the united states -- mr. trump: we have a country that is in big trouble. our infrastructure is going to hell, our hospitals and airports -- i go throughout the world. you go to qatar, you go to so many places, in china, asia, different places in the middle east. you look at some of the airports they have, the roadways they have, the transportation systems they have and the trains. we are like a third world country. so i am going to be very good for the world and get along with the world. you will be very proud of me, even you will be proud of me as a president. we have to rebuild our country because our country is going to
3:18 am
hell. and hillary clinton does not have a clue. one thing that really bothered me, the reason i have such great support, is that people in the middle income groups are making less money today than they made 12 years ago. they are making less money, she has been there with obama for a long period of time. why haven't they done anything about it? then you look at her record as secretary of state, it is abysmal. you look at what goes on with syria. it is a disaster. we are going to have an interesting period of time. if she is allowed to run i will be surprised.
3:19 am
but if she is allowed to run, it will be a sad day for this country. because what she did was wrong. [applause] mr. trump: what she did was wrong, and other people have done far worse than her and paid a very big price. ok, one or two coup more questions. reporter: yesterday you said you would test negotiations -- mr. trump: where did you say this? yes, i will take two feet off the wall. reporter: would you allow them to stay in the country? mr. trump: at this moment, absolutely not. we either have a country or we
3:20 am
do not. we have borders or we do not. [applause] mr. trump: one or two more questions. reporter: there is a monkeywrench at the state level -- mr. trump: ok, go ahead. reporter: should they commit to honoring their agreement with you? mr. trump: i like the rnc, i don't know if i have been treated fairly or not. but i do respect them. what i do have is a great number of people. i have millions and millions of people. when i was watching those of broadcast a little while ago
3:21 am
before i wanted to exactly where we were before i started speaking, i was amazed at the numbers. republicans have enormous energy, the democrats don't. there are numbers are through the roof. people are making statements they have never seen in modern times, a party that was so energized. i think if someone is doing as well as i am doing, and i am not just speaking for myself, but if i am going to win 5 -- i already won 5 -- it could be nine. if i am going to win all of these states, and at worst, second, it is awfully hard to say that is not the person we want to lead the party. i think it is a great question, because i really think that one of the biggest things everyone it sees happening, is the
3:22 am
republican party has become more dynamic and diverse. we are taking from the democrats and the independents. we have a lot more people. take a look at south carolina. look at the numbers from four years ago. then -- i was there, you had lines a mile long. it virtually more than doubled. we have a very, very dynamic party. and i think we will be able to unify the party. i think we will get along with everybody. i don't know paul ryan well, but i hope to get along with it. i do know mitch mcconnell a little bit. remember this, i have millions and millions and millions of people. this is not a close match. it is too bad winner did not take all, because this thing would be over, and we would have a celebration. [applause]
3:23 am
mr. trump: look, i want to end by thanking everyone. this has been an amazing period in my life. and you know my daughter will be having a baby's, she is a special person. that could certainly be within the next week. this has been an amazing period of time, even from an educational standpoint. i did something almost nobody thought could be done. and i am very proud. i am a unifier, i would love to see the republican party and everybody get together and unify. when we unify, there is nobody that is going to beat us. thank you very much everybody. [applause]

>> in the democratic race, hillary clinton won in 7 of the states. ♪ [cheers and applause] hillary clinton: thank you all so much. thank you! thank you all so much. what a super tuesday! [cheers and applause]
3:25 am
hillary clinton: all across our country, democrats voted today to break down barriers so we can all rise together. [cheers and applause] hillary clinton: i am so delighted to be with you here in florida. [applause] hillary clinton: i congratulate senator sanders on his strong showing and campaigning. i am grateful to all of you who voted for me, to the volunteers and organizers. i know you have worked your hearts out. and all my friends, many of a lifetime, who traveled to all the states to tell people about the candidate they knew. and to the hundreds and thousands of people who went to hillaryclinton.com to give what they could. [cheers and applause]
3:26 am
hillary clinton: now this campaign moves forward to the motor city and beyond. [cheers and applause] hillary clinton: we are going to work for every vote. and we will need all of you to keep volunteering, contributing, doing everything you can, talking to your friends and neighbors, because this country belongs to all of us. not just those at the top. [cheers and applause] hillary clinton: not just people who look one way, worship one way, or even think one way. america prospers when we all prosper. america is strong when we are all strong. [cheers and applause] hillary clinton: and we know we have got work to do. but that work is not to make america great again.
3:27 am
america never stopped being great. [cheers and applause] hillary clinton: we have to make america whole. we have to fill in what has been hollowed out. [chanting "usa"] hillary clinton: we have to make strong the broken places, restitch the bonds of trust and respect across our country. it might be unusual, as i have said before, for a presidential candidate to say this. but i'm going to keep saying it. i believe what we need in america today is more love and kindness. [cheers and applause] hillary clinton: because you
3:28 am
know what? you know what? it works. instead of building walls, we are going to break down barriers -- [cheers and applause] hillary clinton: build ladders of opportunity and empowerment so every american can live up to his or her potential. because then and only then, can america live up to its full potential, too. [cheers and applause] hillary clinton: it is clear tonight the stakes in this election have never been higher. and the rhetoric we are hearing on the other side has never been lower. [booing] hillary clinton: trying to divide america between us and
3:29 am
them is wrong, and we are not going to let it work. [cheers and applause] hillary clinton: you know, whether we like it or not, we are all in this together, my friends. and we all have to do our part. but unfortunately too many of those with the most wealth and power in this country today seem to have forgotten that basic truth about america. you know yesterday i was at the old south meeting house in boston where nearly two and a half centuries ago, american patriots organized the original tea party. and i had to wonder what they would make of corporations that seem to have absolutely no loyalty to the country that gave them so much. what would they say about student loan companies that overcharge young people struggling to get out of debt? even young men and women serving our country in the military.
3:30 am
or corporations that shift their headquarters overseas to avoid paying their fair share of taxes. like johnson controls, an auto parts company from wisconsin that we taxpayers helped to bail out with the auto rescue in 2008. now they are turning their back on america. [booing] hillary clinton: i am not interested in condemning categories of people or businesses. i am just interested in making things right. let there be no doubt. if you cheat your employees, exploit consumers, pollute our environment, or rip off the taxpayers -- we are going to hold you accountable. [cheers and applause]
3:31 am
hillary clinton: but if you do the right thing, if you invest in your workers and in america's future, we will stand with you. we all need to work together to break down the barriers holding back our families and our country because the middle class needs a raise. [cheers and applause] hillary clinton: and more good jobs. jobs that pay enough for a family to live on. even put a little away for retirement. jobs that provide dignity and a bright future. that is why we have to invest in manufacturing, infrastructure, small business, and clean energy, enough clean energy to power every home in america. [cheers and applause] hillary clinton: don't let anybody tell you we can't make things in america anymore because we can, we are, and we
3:32 am
will. and together, we can break down the barriers that face working-class families across america, especially in struggling rust belt communities and small appalachian towns that have been hollowed out by lost jobs and lost hope. families that for generations cap are lights on and factories running. together, we can break down barriers for our kids so they get the education they need and deserve. [cheers and applause] hillary clinton: every child in america should have a great school and a great teacher, no matter what zip code they live in. [cheers and applause] hillary clinton: together, we can break down barriers for women and finally guarantee equal pay for equal work. [cheers and applause]
3:33 am
hillary clinton: and we can break down barriers for families who have seen too many black children harassed, humiliated, and even killed. we can break down barriers for voters in north carolina who have been systematically disenfranchised and disempowered. we can break down barriers for hard-working immigrants everywhere who are too often exploited and intimidated. [cheers and applause] hillary clinton: we have to defend all our rights, workers
3:34 am
rights, and women's rights, civil rights, and voting rights, lgbt rights, and rights for people with disabilities. that starts by standing with president obama when he nominates a strong, progressive justice to the supreme court. i know too many americans have lost faith in our future. we hear it in the voices of parents who don't know how they are going to give their kids the opportunities they deserve. we see it in the eyes of working men and women who don't expect anything to come easy but wonder why it has to be quite so hard. like many of you, i find strength and purpose in the values i learned from my family and my faith. they gave me simple words to live by. an old method of saying, do all
3:35 am
the good you can for all the people you can for as long as you can. [cheers and applause] hillary clinton: that is why i believe deeply that if we resist the forces trying to drive us apart, we can come together to make this country work for everyone. the struggling, the striving and the successful. if we all do our part, we can restore our common faith in our common future. that is the spirit powering this campaign. it comes from the young janitor in arkansas who stopped buying junk food and put off getting a haircut so he could contribute to us. it comes from the disabled combat veteran from nebraska who sent in $10. in 70 years of his life, he had never donated to a political campaign until now.
3:36 am
you can join us, too. please go to hillaryclinton.com. make a donation. let me leave you with a story that has inspired so many of us. by now, we all know what happened in flint, michigan, don't we? how a city's children were poisoned by toxic water because their governor wanted to save a little money. [booing] hillary clinton: but there is another story in flint. it is a story of a community that has been knocked down but refuse to be knocked out. it is hundreds of union plumbers coming from across the country to help install new water fixtures. it is students raising funds for water deliveries and showing up to distribute supplies. it is the united auto general motors donating millions of dollars to help. when i visited flint a few weeks ago, i went to the house of prayer missionary baptist church.
3:37 am
the congregation locked arms and sang, "we have come too far from where we started from. we are not about to quit now." we know there are many other flints out there, communities that are hurting and need help. but we have come too far in this country to turn back. we will build on the progress we have made. we saved the auto industry. thank you, president obama. now we have got to create new jobs and industries of the future. [cheers and applause] hillary clinton: we have now insured 90% of americans thanks to president obama. now we have to finish the job and get to 100%. [cheers and applause] hillary clinton: we have come too far to stop now. we have got to keep going, keep working, keep breaking down
3:38 am
those barriers. and imagine what we can build together when each and every american has a chance to live up to his or her own god-given potential. thank you all so very much. thank you. [cheers and applause] >> hillary! hillary! hillary! [cheers and applause] ♪

4:17 am
it is about recognizing that in our state, we have town meetings and people come out, they argue about budgets, and then they vote. one person, one vote. [cheers and applause] in vermont, billionaires do not buy town meetings, and in america, we are going to end a corrupt campaign finance system. [cheers and applause] we can disagree on democracy, that's what a democracy is about.

we are so excited about what lies ahead for our campaign. you see, just five days ago, we began to unmask the true nature of the frontrunner so far in this race. five days ago, we began to explain to the american people that donald trump is a con artist. [applause] sen. rubio: and in just five days, we have seen and the impact it is having all across the country. [applause] sen. rubio: we are seeing in state after state, his numbers coming down, our numbers going up. [applause] sen. rubio: and two weeks from
4:41 am
tonight, right here in florida, we are going to send a message loud and clear. we are going to send a message that the party of lincoln and reagan and the presidency of the united states will never be held by a con artist. [applause] [chanting "usa"] sen. rubio: of all the places in america, and i have traveled this country and am proud to be back, because there is no place in america that understands the american dream better than this community and this great state of florida. [applause] sen. rubio: like our country, this is a place built by people who always work hard for a better life. here in this community, we have all been raised by people who
4:42 am
know how special america is, because they know what life is like outside of america. people who lost their homeland. by millions of people who lost their future. but thank god they found this great country where anything is possible, where anyone can go as far as their talent and hard work will take them. [applause] sen. rubio: but we know that the things that make america special did not happen on their own. they happens because for over 200 years, each generation of americans did what they needed to do to leave their children better off than themselves. i am from a place in america that understands that. for literally everyone one of us here is one generation away from someone who made the future of their lives. only in america would that be possible. [applause]
4:43 am
sen. rubio: but that american dream that changed our lives and changed the world is in trouble now. for the first time in a long time, young americans believe the american dream is dead. it is not dead, but it is in a lot of trouble. because after 8 years of barack obama, the american dream is slipping away. but here is the good news. we do not have to remain on the road we are on right now. when i am president of united states, we will not just save the american dream, we will expand it to reach more people than ever. [applause] sen. rubio: in just the last week, since thursday's debate, i have been inundated with e-mails and calls from people all across this country who are joining our effort. if you are watching tonight, i
4:44 am
ask you to join our effort. i ask you to go to marcorubio.com. be a part of our team. because what is at stake, is not just the future of america, that the future of the conservative movement. 36 years ago, ronald reagan defined conservatism for a generation. it is not a coincidence that so many young americans my age and a few years older are all people who believe in the american dream, and in the conservative message. [applause] sen. rubio: because we are the children of the reagan revolution. we believe in free enterprise. we believe in a strong national defense. we believe in limited government. we believe in the constitution of the united states.
4:45 am
[applause] sen. rubio: we believe the world is a stronger and better place when america is the strongest country on earth. [applause] sen. rubio: and we know that america is strongest when it stands with its allies, allies like israel. we will always be on their side. we stand for freedom in cuba, venezuela, nicaragua. [applause] sen. rubio: these things are not negotiable. [chanting "marco"] sen. rubio: these things are not negotiable.
4:46 am
but there are some people who are not strong on these issues. the other day, donald trump was asked, will you take sides with israel, and he said he is not taking sides. [booing] sen. rubio: donald trump says he is not taking sides and wants to be impartial. when i am president of the united states, we are on israel's side. [applause] sen. rubio: and the world will know we are on israel's side, because in my first day of office, we will cancel barack obama's deal with iran. [applause] sen. rubio: when i am president of the united states, for the first time in eight years, we will have a president who follows the constitution, not
4:47 am
violates it every day. [applause] sen. rubio: it will begin on my first day in office, because of my first day, i will cancel every single one of barack obama's unconstitutional executive orders. [applause] sen. rubio: when i am president of the united states, you will have a president that believes in free enterprise, and actually offers ideas to save it. i believe in free enterprise, not because my parents were wealthy. i did not inherit $100 million. i did not start out with a small, $2 million loan from my dad. my dad was a bartender on miami beach. [applause] sen. rubio: and the reason why he had a job is because free enterprise works. if any community in america understands that socialism does not work, it is right here in miami, right here in florida. [applause]
4:48 am
sen. rubio: when i am president, i will reduce taxes and regulations. we will save medicare and balance our budget. we will utilize energy resources. and i will do more than just erase the lines around the state. for health care, we will repeal and replace obamacare once and for all. [applause] sen. rubio: when i am president of the united states, we are going to rebuild the united states military. [applause] sen. rubio: when i am president, we are going to have a real war on terror, which means the best intelligence agencies in the world will find the terrorists. the best military will destroy

[applause] sen. rubio: when i am president of the united states, we are going to take care of our veterans again. god bless our veterans. [applause] sen. rubio: and by the way, when i am president, you will have a president that every day will do what i will do right now. i will thank our firefighters and police officers for everything they do for us. [applause] sen. rubio: and you will have a president who never apologizes for defending your second amendment right to protect yourself and your family. these are indeed difficult times, and many people are
4:50 am
struggling. i know many of you are struggling. do not give into the fear. do not give into anger. do not give into sham and con artists who try to take advantage of your suffering and your hardships. instead, believe as we always have as a nation and a people, that we do what needs to be done, america's greatest days are always yet to come. we have a real problems, and we will confront those problems and fix them. we will lead our children as the free as in most prosperous americans that have ever lived. we always believe in this country that tomorrow can always be better than today. there is a lot of work to be done.

[applause] sen. rubio: that is why i am so passionate about this election. that is why i want you to understand, that no matter how long it takes, no matter how many states it takes, how many weeks and months, i will campaign as long as it takes to ensure that i am the next president of the united states.

[applause]

[cheers and applause]
5:54 am
mr. trump: this has been an amazing evening. we have won five major states. we could win six or seven or nine. it has been great. i congratulate ted cruz on that win. we are going to make america great again. i watched hillary's speech. she is talking about wages have been poor. everything is doing badly. she has been there for so long. if she hasn't straightened it out by now she is not going to straighten it out in the next four years. it is going to be worse.
5:55 am
she wants to make america whole again. what is that about? make america great again is better than make america whole again. this was an exciting evening. it is great to be in florida. it is great to be with friends in the press. i know it was a tough night for marco rubio. he worked hard. he spent a lot of money. he is a lightweight. but you know what, we are going to go to florida and spend so much time in florida. we have a 20 point lead. a lot of the special interests and lobbyists, the people that want to have their little senator do exactly as they want, they're going to pay $20 million into it over the next two weeks. frankly i think that is fine as far as i am concerned.
5:56 am
if he wins they will have total control. he is not going anywhere anyway. we are going to spend a lot of time in florida. virginia was a great win. it is a place we have big investments. we have thousands of employees and florida. it has been an amazing place to invest. it has been amazing to have so many wonderful employees, urging us on. thousands of employees all over the country, all over the world. it has been just so beautiful to watch this company grow and watch it grow so strongly. recent articles came out talking about how great a company we built. we want to put that same ability into doing something for our nation. our nation is in serious
5:57 am
trouble. we are being killed on trade. absolutely destroyed. china is taking advantage of us. i have nothing against china. i have great respect for china. their leaders are too smart for our leaders. the trade deficits at $400 billion and $500 billion are too much. no country can sustain that kind of trade deficit. it will not be that way for long. we have the greatest business leaders in the world on my team already. believe me we are going to redo those trade deals. you look at countries like mexico where they are killing us on the border. absolutely destroying is on the border. they are destroying us in terms of economic development. carrier air-conditioner moving into mexico. ford moving to mexico. nabisco closing up shop in chicago and moving into mexico. we have to stop it. we are going to create jobs we
5:58 am
will create jobs like you've never seen. we're going to lower taxes. i have a plan that so many think is the best plan they have seen. we going to lower taxes substantially. the middle class has been forgotten. it was the predominant factor in making our country into a country that we love so much. but we forgotten the middle class. we are going to lower taxes. we are lowering taxes on business. when you see pfizer moving to ireland and you see so many other companies constantly leaving. they used to move from new york to florida. will they move from new jersey to someplace else, chris. not that many people are leaving new jersey. chris understands the problem. we can't let that happen.
5:59 am
we have lost manufacturing jobs. millions and millions of jobs, thousands and thousands of plants. manufacturing plants, warehouses. we are losing so much we can't let it happen. i tell the story about a friend of mine who was in the excavation business. he always orders caterpillar. he ordered tractors from japan because they have cut the end. they have devalued the yen. i don't want that to happen. that is not going to happen. they should not be able to do it. we have tremendous power. we are the source. we have great power. we have politicians who truly, truly don't know what they are doing. we are going to work hard.
6:00 am
i am so honored by this. i was with my wife, it looks literally like this. you have a lot of cameras here tonight. it looks literally like the academy awards. i never saw so many cameras in my life. it takes a lot of courage to run for president. i have never done this before. i have been a job producer. i have done a lot of things. this is something i have never done. and you look the income when -- but i felt we had to do it. when you look at the incompetence of the koran deal deal, where wean get absolutely nothing. when you look at all of the problems our country has, you look at our military which is being depleted rapidly, we are going to make our military bigger and better and stronger than ever before and nobody, nobody is going to mess with us, folks, nobody. [applause] mr. trump: so -- so it is an amazing honor to have you with me tonight.
6:01 am
it will be ok if you want ask questions. [inaudible question] >> there is pressure within their publican party. some strongly worded statements, if donald trump inns up as the nominee, we will need to find a third-party option. what do you say to that? mr. trump: well, they can always do that. then they will just lose everything. then it will just be the work of a loser. let me explain something. if you have seen what has happened, where we had a tremendous victory in new hampshire, tremendous in nevada, you look at what has happened and tonight is the best of all. right now they have projected 6. 9, majoruld be 7, 8,
6:02 am
states, georgia, massachusetts, -- [cheers] mr. trump: tennessee, virginia. these are amazing states. we are going to probably get a lot more. in fact we are projected to have , good additional numbers. i will say this. look, we have expanded the republican party. when you look at what has happened in south carolina and you see the kind of numbers we have in terms of extra people coming in. they came from the democratic party, the democrats. they were long-term democrats. they were never going to switch and they all switched. and the all switched. they were independents. we have expanded the party. look at the number of votes in that area as an example. four years ago they had 390 thousand votes. we doubled it.
6:03 am
we were almost 800,000 votes. the democrats went down. there is much less enthusiasm. i am a unifier. i know people will find that hard to believe. i am a unifier. once we get this finished i'm going to go after one person, hillary clinton on the assumption she is allowed to run which is a big assumption. [applause] mr. trump: i don't know she is going to be allowed to run. that is going to be an easy race. i beat hillary in many polls. i don't think marco is going to be able to beat her. i think ted is going to have a hard time. ted cruz has a shot because at least he has one a little bit. we are going to be a much finer party. a much -- a unified party. to be honest with you. we are going to be a much bigger party. our party is expanding. look at the primary states were i have one. that has not happened to the republican party in many, many
6:04 am
decades. so, i think we're going to be more inclusive, more unified, a much bigger party, and i think we going to win in november. [applause] mr. trump: ok, yeah? [inaudible question] trump calling i am just doing what is right. -- mr. trump: i am just doing what is right. planned parenthood has done good work. i will say it. i am a conservative. i'm a commonsense conservative. millions of women have been helped by planned parenthood. we are not going to allow and fund as long as you have the abortion going on at planned parenthood. we understand that. i have said it loud and clear. and, we will see what happens. planned parenthood, millions of people writing letters.
6:05 am
-- thousands of letters of women that have been helped. this was not a set-up. i am going to be good for women. i am going to be good for women's health issues. it is very important to me. maybe that is not a perfect conservative view. but i can tell you i am more conservative than anybody on the military, taking care of our veterans, on the border on the wall, on getting rid of obama care and coming up with something much, much better. and certainly getting rid of common core and bringing education to a local level so that you have good education for our children. who are being absolutely starved for proper education. so, i mean, you can call it what you want. but i am a truth teller. and, i will tell the truth. ok? go ahead. finish it.
6:06 am
i feel awfully good. i'm watching your people. i'm going to be very nice. i'm watching your people on cnn. i'm watching the msnbc people. and i am watching the fox people. ok, see? i'm becoming diplomatic. and they are certainly being very nice to me tonight. you know, they are being very strong. and, they are declaring marco rubio the big loser of the night. he hasn't won anything. i have to tell you, he was very nasty. he has a right to be nasty. he has not won anything. and he is not going to be very nice. i do congratulate ted cruz. i know how hard ted cruz has worked on texas. that is a big get. i did very well in texas. i came in second. one of the things my son told me which i didn't realize is that not only do i win most of the states, some are coming in, i came in second, no worst than second.
6:07 am
so, it wasn't like i won and then i disappeared. the worst i had was a second. so i am very honored by the turnout. ok, yes, go ahead. [inaudible question] donald trump: right, right. oh, they are totally wrong. i disavowed. chris is my -- he gave me the honor of joining the campaign. he called me, he said, now what you have is a movement. we spoke. today in kentucky. you will not believe what they had. 20,000 peoplee inside this massive convention center. every place we are thinking. if we have 10,000 people it is a small group. when chris called he said this is a movement.
6:08 am
they have never seen what is happening now. when chris joined we had a news conference. and they asked me the exact same question. and i said, i disavow. now, right after the program we are talking about, we are groups, groups. who knows. i mean, they have to give me the name of the group. but right after, i put out a tweet and i put on facebook that i totally disavowed. i disavowed them. i disavowed then, i disavowed today with george stephanopoulos on abc. i disavowed it today. but, i disavowed and i hope it is the final time i have to do it. but, if you look at facebook and twitter i put out a statement because i wanted everyone to be sure.
6:09 am
[inaudible question] mr. trump: no, it is not. but there is always going to be some negotiation. and it's going to be a good , negotiation. not a bad negotiation. hopefully i will make a great deal and lots of great deals for the american people. now look, you cannot go around just signing notices the president signs all the time, executive orders. he is like, executive order, executive order. i don't know, does he deal with congress anymore? does he speak with congressman and get them in a room and get things done? a good example is something that i think is important to me. corporate inversion. carl icahn, a great businessman who endorses me, i talked to him about where we are losing
6:10 am
companies. the taxes are too high. we have the highest taxed nation in the world. and very importantly they have trillions, trillions of dollars outside of this country. the democrats agree it should be brought back in. the republicans agree it should be brought back in. everyone agrees it should be brought back in. i could sit in a room or the oval office for literally half hour and i believe i could get everybody, every single person. it is one thing if they do not agree on health core -- on health care or common core or other things. here's one thing where everybody were almost everybody agrees. these trillions and trillions of dollars should be brought into the country he doesn't know how to make a deal. he probably does not work at it. he probably doesn't care. you are talking tremendous amounts of money. so, when you have something that
6:11 am
everybody wants and you cannot make a deal, there is something going on that is wrong. you have the wrong leader. [inaudible question] donald trump: we are going to have a wall. i can tell you. we are going to have a wall. i watched the ex-president of mexico. the arrogance of this man. i get along with hispanics. you saw in nevada, i won in the poll, the hispanic vote. i have thousands who work for me right now that are hispanic. i've had thousands of thousands over my lifetime. these are great people. the mexican leaders are too smart for our leaders. you saw it. first of all, vincent fox, no one even talked about the word he used. he was angry at the concept of somebody saying they were going to pay for the wall. mexico is going to pay for the wall. we have a trade deficit with mexico. $58 billion.
6:12 am
the wall is going to cost $10 billion. it is so easy. i have had these guys that i am on the stage with come up and say, you don't really mean mexico is going to pay for the wall. as sure as you are standing there, 100% mexico is going to pay. [applause] mr. trump: the reason is i'm a businessman. i know how to do this. politicians are all talk. no action. except for chris christie, of course. it is not going to happen. when you think of that, and they say you are never going to be able to build a wall, it is 2000 miles but we need 1000 miles. the great wall of china is 13,000 miles, folks. bill 2000 years ago. and, they didn't have caterpillar tractors. i love john deere. they didn't have tractors. they didn't have cranes. they didn't have excavation equipment. the wall is 13,000 miles long. we have all of the materials.
6:13 am
this is going to be a serious wall. this is going to be a high wall. this is going to be a very serious wall. we are going to stop drugs from coming into new hampshire. you know, when i went to new hampshire, those people were so wonderful to me. when you go to new hampshire, it is so beautiful, it is so bucolic. and yet, when you go to a meeting in new hampshire, the number one problem, heroin is pouring in. they have so many young people and other people addicted. i told them i'm going to stop it. i'm going to stop it. we are going to have a strong. we are going to have a strong border. people are going to come into this country, but they are going to come in legally.
6:14 am
>> what do you think of rick scott? mr. trump: he is a friend of mine and i have a lot of respect for rick scott. [inaudible] donald trump: we have a big problem. [inaudible] mr. trump: we have a big, big problem. i will tell it like it is. we have a big, big problem. we have to figure it out. radical islamic terrorism, big problem. not only for us. you take a look at germany, sweden, brussels. you look at these places. it is like a disaster. and, we are not going to allow people to come into our country, we have no idea where they come from. they have no paperwork. they are young and they are strong. you look at that migration line. they are strong, they are powerful. and you say, why aren't they back fighting for their country?
6:15 am
with that being said i feel strong. we're going to build a safe zone in syria. and when to get the gulf states who have more money than anybody. we have to loosen their wallets. they are not accepting people. but wait, wait, wait. we are going to get the gulf states to pay for it. and they should. you heard what i said. i gave you a good answer. go ahead. question] mr. trump: you heard what i
6:16 am
said. reporter: what are you going to bring back -- mr. trump: we are going to bring them back. we are going to do great with the african-american. you see that in the polls, one poll i am 25%. and one of the commentators, who i think is standing in the back of the corner said, if donald trump gets 25% of the african-american vote, this election is over. you watch. the reason i am getting that and i will do great with hispanics and virtually every group. the reason, i am going to bring jobs back. i will have apple build of their computers and iphones on our land, not in china. how does it help us when we make it in china? [applause] reporter: if marco rubio cannot win florida, is it time for him to get out? trump: look, i'll was liked marco until about a week ago when he went hostile. he decided to become a don rickles. but don rickles has a lot more talent. honestly, i did. he is losing very badly. someone told him, the only way you can possibly win, take the hail mary, it has hurt him. in fact, one of the newscast said he went down 15% or 20%.
6:17 am
it has really hurt him. but look, i am not going to tell him what to do. i am not going to tell anybody what to do. he had a bad night. according to cnn, fox. i watched their broadcast. they said of the loser of the night was marco rubio. he has not won anything. at least you can say that ted has won something. marco has not won. you got to be able to win, you cannot talk. you have to be able to win something. he actually has not come very close. we will see what happens. yes, go ahead. reporter: there is a criticism from paul ryan [inaudible question] mr. trump: i was not equivocating. let's not say it again, who are you? good job.
6:18 am
who are you? who are you with? look, i don't want to waste a lot of time. i am going to get along great with congress. paul ryan, i do not know him well, but i'm sure we will get along. and if we don't, he will have to pay a big price, ok? ok. [laughter] go ahead, on the right. ok, yes? reporter: mr. trump, you say what you will do for the united states -- mr. trump: i am going to be a , good president. but look. we have a country that is in big trouble. our infrastructure is going to hell, our hospitals and airports -- i go throughout the world. you go to qatar, you go to so many places, in china, asia, different places in the middle east. you look at some of the airports they have, the roadways they have, the transportation systems they have and the trains. we are like a third world country. so i am going to be very good
6:19 am
for the world and get along with the world. you are going to be very proud of me, even you will be very proud of me as a president. but, we have to rebuild our country because our country is going to hell. and hillary clinton does not have a clue. she can't do that. she is talking about -- you know, one thing that really bothered me, the reason i have such great support, is that people in the middle income groups are making less money today than they made 12 years ago. and in her speech she just said they are making less money, she has been there with obama for a long period of time. why haven't they done anything about it? then you look at her record as secretary of state, it is abysmal. you look at what goes on with syria. you look at what is going on with everything. it is a disaster. we are going to have an interesting period of time.
6:20 am
i do not know if she is going to be allowed to run. what she did was a criminal act. if she is allowed to run i will be surprised. but if she is allowed to run, it will be a sad day for this country. because what she did was wrong. and what she did, let me just tell you -- [applause] mr. trump: what she did was wrong, and other people have done far worse than her and paid -- far less they on her and they paid a very, very big price. ok, one or two more questions. reporter: yesterday you said you would test negotiations -- mr. trump: where did i say that? where? where? i did not say that. yes, i will take two feet off the wall. you did not listen, jeremy.
6:21 am
reporter: would you allow them to stay in the country? mr. trump: at this moment, absolutely not. no. we either have a country or we do not. we have borders or we do not. and at this moment, the answer is, absolutely not. [applause] mr. trump: one or two more questions. reporter: there is a monkeywrench at the state level -- trying to clear you away -- mr. trump: i think, you know, it david -- ok, go ahead. reporter: should they commit to honoring their agreement with you? mr. trump: well, look, i do not expect -- i have a lot of respect. i like the rnc, i don't know if i have been treated fairly or not. but i can tell you that i do respect him. what i do have is a great number
6:22 am
of people. i have millions and millions of people. when i was watching those of broadcasts just a little while ago before i came in here because i wanted to see exactly where we were before he started speaking. i was amazed at the numbers. republicans have enormous energy, the democrats don't. there are numbers are through the roof. people are making statements they have never seen in modern times, a party that was so energized. i think if someone is doing as well as i am doing, and i am not just speaking for myself, but if it was me or anyone else. if i am going to win 5 -- i already won 5 -- it could be nine. i could win nine states tonight. if i'm going to win all of these and at worst, second, it is awfully hard to say that is not the person we want to lead the party.
6:23 am
you know, it is very hard. it i think it is a going question -- a great question, david, because i really think that one of the biggest things everyone it sees happening, is the republican party has become more dynamic and diverse. we are taking from the democrats and the independents. we have a lot more people. we have a lot more people. i mean, take a look at south carolina. look at the numbers from four years ago. then -- i was there, you had lines a mile long. it virtually more than doubled. we have a very, very dynamic party. and i think we will be able to unify the party. i think we will get along with everybody. i don't know paul ryan well, but i hope to be able to get along with him. i do know mitch mcconnell a little bit. but i hope to the able to get along with him. remember this, i have millions and millions and millions of people. this is not a close match. it is too bad winner did not
6:24 am
take all, because this thing would be over, and we would have a celebration. [applause] you know, we are having a celebration. --anyway, i just want to look, i want to end by thanking everyone. this has been an amazing period in my life. and you know my daughter will be having a baby very soon. she is a special person. that could certainly be within the next week. this has been an amazing period of time, even from an educational standpoint. and i think honestly, we have done something that almost nobody thought could be done. and i am very proud. i just want to leave you with this. i am a unifier, i would love to see the republican party and everybody get together and unify. when we unify, there is nobody that is going to beat us. thank you very much everybody. [applause]
6:25 am
mr. trump: thank you very much, thank you. [applause] announcer in the democratic race on super tuesday, hillary clinton one in seven of the states. she talked about it in miami. this is happened our. happened and our.
6:26 am
senator clinton: thank you all so very much. what a super tuesday. country, all across our today, democrats voted to break down barriers so we can all rise together. [cheering] clinton: i am so delighted to be here with you in florida. [cheers] senator clinton: i congratulate senator sanders on his strong showing and campaigning. i am grateful to all of you who voted for me. the volunteers and organizers. i know you have worked your hearts out. and to all my friends, many of a lifetime that have traveled to all the states to tell people about the candidate they knew.
6:27 am
and to the hundreds of thousands of people who went to hillary clinton.com, to give what they could. most less than $100. [cheers] hillary clinton: now this campaign moves forward to the crescent city, the motor city, and beyond. [cheers] senator clinton we are going to : work for every vote, and we will need all of you to keep volunteering, contributing, doing everything you can. talking to your friends and neighbors. because this country belongs to all of us, not just those at the top. [cheers] not just the people that look one way, worship one way, or even think one way. [cheers] secretary clinton: america prospers when we all prosper. america is strong when we are all strong. [cheers]
6:28 am
clinton: and we know we've got work to do. but that work -- that work is not to make america great again. america never stopped being great. [cheers] sec. clinton: we have to make america whole. we have to fill in what has been hollowed out. [chanting u.s.a.] sec. clinton: no, we have to make strong the broken places, restitch the bonds of trust and respect across our country. it might be unusual, as i have said before, for a presidential candidate to say this, but i'm going to keep saying it -- i believe what we need in america
6:29 am
today is more love and kindness. [cheers] sec. clinton: becuase you know what? it works. instead of building walls, we are going to break barriers-- [cheers] build laddersand of opportunity and empowerment so every american can live up to his or her potential. because then and only then can america live up to its full potential. [cheers] sec. clinton: now, it is clear tonight that the stakes in this election have never been higher. and the rhetoric we are hearing on the other side has never been lower. [boos]
6:30 am
sec. clinton: trying to divide america between us and them is wrong. we are not going to let it work. [cheers] sec. clinton: whether we like it or not, we are all in this together, my friends. [cheers] sec. clinton: and we all have to do our part. but unfortunately, to many of those with the most wealth and power in this country today, seem to have forgotten that basic truth about america. yesterday i was in the old south meeting house in boston, where nearly 2.5 centuries ago, american patriots organized the original tea party. and i had to wonder what they would make of corporations that seem to have no loyalty to the
6:31 am
country that gave them so much. what would they say about student loan companies that overcharge young people struggling to get out of debt? [cheers] sec. clinton: even young men and women serving our country in the military. or corporations that ship their headquarters overseas to avoid paying their fair share of taxes. [cheers] sec. clinton: like johnson controls, an auto-parts companies from wisconsin, that all of us, we taxpayers hope to bailout --taxpayers helped to bail out in the auto wrecks the 2008, now they are turning their backs on america. [boos] sec. clinton: now, i am not interested in condemning whole categories of people businesses. i'm just interested in making things right. let there be no doubt, if you cheat your employees, exploit consumers, pollute our environment, or rip off the taxpayers, we are going to hold
6:32 am
you accountable. [cheers] sec. clinton: but if you do the right thing, if you invest in your workers and in america's future, then we will stand with you. we all need to work together to break down the barriers holding back our families and our country. because the middle class needs a raise. [cheers] sec. clinton: and more good jobs. jobs that pay enough for a family to live on. [cheers] sec. clinton: even put a little away for retirement. jobs that provide dignity and a bright future. that is why we have to invest in manufacturing, in infrastructure, in small business and clean energy. enough clean energy to power every home in america. [cheers]
6:33 am
sec. clinton: don't let anybody tell you we can't make things in america anymore, because we can. we are, and we will. [cheers] sec. clinton: and together we can break down the barriers that face working-class families across america. especially in rust belt communities and small, appellation towns that have been hollowed out and left without hope. those who kept our country running. together we can break down barriers so they get the education they need and deserve. every child in america should have a great school and a great teacher no matter what zip code they live in.
6:34 am
together, we can break down barriers for women and finally guarantee equal pay for equal work. [applause] "hillary"] clinton: and we can break down barriers for families who have seen too many black children harassed, humiliated. we can break down barriers for voters in north carolina who have been systematically disenfranchised and disempowered. we can break down barriers for hard-working immigrants everywhere who are too often
6:35 am
exploited and intimidated. [cheering and applause] clinton: we have to defend all of our rights, workers rights, women's rights, civil rights, voting rights. lgbt rights and rights for people with disabilities. that starts by standing with president obama when he nominates a strong supreme justice to the supreme court. [applause] secretary clinton: i know too many americans have lost faith in our future. we hear it in the voices of parents who don't know how they are going to give their kids the opportunities they deserve. we see in the eyes of working men and women who don't expect anything to come easy but wonder why it has to be quite so hard. like many of you i find strength and purpose in the values i learned from my family and my faith. they gave me simple words to live by. do all the good you can for all the people you can for as long as you can. that is why i believe that if we
6:36 am
resist the forces trying to drive us apart we can come together to make this country work for everyone, the strong -- the struggling, the striving, and the successful. if we all work together, we can restore our common faith in our common future. that is the spirit powering this campaign. it comes from the young janitor in arkansas who stopped buying junk food and put off being a -- getting a haircut to contribute to it. it comes from the disabled combat veteran from nebraska who sent in $10.
6:37 am
in 70 years of his life, he had never donated to a political campaign until now. you can join us, too. please go to hillary clinton.com. text "join" to 47246. let me leave you with a story that has inspired so many of us. we know what happened in flint, michigan don't we? our city's children were poisoned by toxic water because their governor wanted to save a little money. but, there is another story in flint. the story of a community that has been knocked down but refused to be knocked out. it is hundreds of union plumbers coming from across the country to help install new water systems. it is students showing up to distribute supplies. it is the united auto workers donating millions of dollars to help. when i visited flint a few weeks ago i went to the house of prayer missionary baptist church, the congregation locked arms and saying. -- and saying.
6:38 am
the congregation locked arms and sang. we have come too far from where we started from. they are not about to quit now. we know there are many other flints out there, communities that need help. we have come too far in this country to let us turn back. we are going to build on the progress that we have made. we have save the auto industry thanks to president obama. now we have to create new jobs and industries of the future. [applause] mrs. clinton: we now have insured 90% of americans -- we need to get to
6:39 am
100%. we have come too far to stop now. we have to keep going. keep working. keep breaking down barriers and imagine what we can build together when each and every american has the chance to live up to his or her god-given potential. thank you so very much. thank you.
